if you read this hello person that gave me this badge it's neat and i wish i knew there was going to be an mlpf meetup because we would have hung out with all of you instead of just taking a picture and dipping out at the very end of the con

i miss this place and it would have been cool to catch up on forum happenings

I told them for you, hun.

 

Also, did I not tell you MLPF people were gonna try and do some things together? Though, to be fair, iirc the stuff they went to do together was like, dinners and such moreso than just run around the con together. Dinner and breakfast would have been a bit odd without actually knowing people, imo.

Also, I totally wouldn't mind actually trying to get into this place again, but I really don't see that happening very easily, tbh.

Meanwhile, I've become far too distrustful with art advice...

Is that OK?

Here's the thing: I gave up asking for art feedback because I rarely get any. I then gave up asking for art advice because most of the advice I've gotten turned out to be useless. I've began to distance myself from art communities because their standards and mine are too different to ever be compatible.

I can't stand being told to change something that I've done for years on the basis that what I've done as a stylistic choice is being misinterpreted as an error. I'd rather not be nitpicked on what I don't do but instead know what I did right, but since figuring out what I did right is an unanswerable question, I simply don't ask for any sort of feedback at all.

I'm going to regular cons about twice a year. There are at least a few mlp fans there :3

Dude, for me it's the other way around. I gave up giving advice because people often got pissed over receiving feedback. I don't want another witch hunt lol

(there's a subreddit for mlp art critique, and I'm sure one for all other art as well)

I've been ignored trying to ask for help too many times before, even in team efforts and especially when I'm the one spearheading the entire project in the first place, and there's oftentimes not enough activity in many of the art groups I've seen.

Not really, imo. That just means you'll bypass anything proper assuming its bad or just not seeing it in the same light.

learning from mistakes is arguably the best way to learn though, rather than just hearing people tell you what you're already doing correctly over and over

Usually I was in FB groups but left most by now. And most of them were locals. I can just talk for the mlpdrawingschool on reddit that they even make videos explaining what could have been better / point out flaws etc. I've let them critique my Sunburst drawing as well :catface:

Back in the days when I was still giving critique I once told a "friend" that her wig styling fell flat on the back of her head - due to the travel - and I offered her "hey, let's go to the bathroom, I'll help you fix it real quick". She then ran to another group of friends telling them I said her wig "looked like sh*t" and then I had 6 months of slander and people calling me a "w**re, dying on the streets".

Idk about the US cons, but I see friends posting about cons all the time - there are soooo many, it's awesome ;w; in my country we have a few but you can't compare them to those of bigger countries (like germany, france or well - the usa). 

Thank you so much!! :rarity:

...yeah, I'd rather not have stylistic choices be mistaken as flaws again... ...but maybe just flat-out declaring that had led to me not receiving any more in-depth feedback...

This thing's always happened wherever I go: rotations, lack of pupils, lack of mouths, even how I format my writing and even how I name characters, all subject to nitpicking. Like, it's not personal incompetence if I'm intentionally making a style that is supposed to be as lightweight on features as possible; how many times do I have to tell that to people?

Honestly, I just wanna uphold my design choices with an iron fist, even if it means never getting feedback ever again.

I don't feel like they'd take style choices for flaws. With my piece they pointed out anatomical mistakes (horn too high, hip rotation wrong). But you do you. I just wanted to give you the heads up that the subreddit exists and actually does give critique if you're looking for it. :grin:

I once tried to branch out to Reddit, and the absence of pupils already screamed incompleteness to some people. I basically now go there not to ask what others think, but to abandon what I have.

Ah, my experiences with the various subreddits (in regards of art and cosplay) were very positive. So I can't really relate, I guess. :3
